Default Looking to rent in the manassas area

I am interviewing for a job in Manassas and so far things look promising. I live in sw of Richmond and own a house there. My thoughts are to rent for 6 months to make sure the job is going to work out before selling. (sellng will hopefully be better in the spring next year)

I am going to stay during the week and return home on the weekends so need a 1 bedroom at the most. Where in the surrounding areas would have the least expensive rents but still be in a safe neighborhood. I need to keep the rent under 800 a month.

Thanks in advance.

John

I haven't needed to live in an apartment in many years but I'd be surprised if this was possible. I'll tell you what complexes I would stay out of and you can go from there. Anything with Coverstone in the name. Westgate Apts. Anything in Irongate although these are just small townhomes. It might be better if you look around and then ask about that complex.

For that price, you'll be looking at a room in someone's house. You might be able to get an apt. for 900-950.

Ravens Crest apartments offer short term leases and are reasonably priced. A lot of the folks who transfer in from Idaho (to work at Micron) live there until they find permanent housing.

If you do find an $800 apartment, I wouldn't trust it.

Either there's a rodent problem or a "neighborhood" problem.

Definitely not Coverstone, Irongate. These are not great areas. Very run down.
